It’s been five years since a gunman opened fire inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing 20 first-graders and six faculty members. The loss of innocent lives on December 14, 2012 left lawmakers across the country looking for answers and solutions to prevent it from happening again. But, five years later, it continues to happen. Tonight, we return to Newtown, Connecticut for a look back at that dreadful day, and the legacy of its young victims. We’re joined by “Newtown” documentary producer Maria Cuomo Cole, and director Kim A. Snyder. This year, the flu is running rampant in New York State, with an 86% increase in the last week alone. Actress Judith Light joins us to share some information you might not know, but definitely need, in your efforts to stay healthy this season. She’ll also share her own horrific tale of the flu and why she is so passionate about its prevention. We also have a peek into the production of a big screen adaptation of “Downton Abbey.” Huff Post’s Entertainment Editorial Director, Lauren Moraski, joins us with the details.
